If you think that leaving the house with an empty stomach and $25 in your pocket won’t keep you from hunger past noon, then clearly you haven’t been following our cheap eats. From breakfast all the way to dessert, Vancity Buzz and Chowmenow found three meals, one snack and a sweet treat each for $5 or less.
Breakfast: East Village Bakery
Even if you’re gluten-free or vegan, you can still break the fast with delicious morning pastries. Try this Chai Vegan Muffin and a medium sized coffee from East Village Bakery for $4.90.
Lunch: Displace Hashery
Skip over to Displace Hashery on West 4th around noon because they’re serving $5 daily lunch deals like this beef, bean, and rice burrito served with your choice of fries or salad.
Snack: Kilimanjaro Snack House
To keep you going until dinner, try the vegetarian samosas (3 for $4.95) or the Kheema Mani, which is spicy meat folded in puff pastry (also $4.95).
Dinner: The Famous Warehouse
No stranger to cheap eat aficionados, the Famous Warehouse is always a sure-bet when it comes to dinner time (or any time). With an entire menu that’s $4.95 or less, there are plenty of options to keep you full and your wallet satisfied. Like quinoa? Then you’ll love the April features, which include Quinoa Stuffed Pepper and Quinoa Salad.
Dessert: Mix The Bakery
$5 slices of Chocolate Oblivion or Carrot Cake are the perfect end to the perfect cheap eating day.
